Anthony Horowitz Pair

Two wickedly spooky black comedies from a master of humour and horror. Joe’s Granny is malicious and evil. He’s not exaggerating: she really IS. It’s bad enough that his rich parents are selfish and uncaring, but even worse than them is Granny. She has the look in her eye of a predatory crocodile, and Joe suspects that she has an unpleasant plan for him. But what is it? And when spoilt rich kid Tad wakes up in the body of a petty fairground crook, is there any going back? Perfect for dark nights, these tongue-in-cheek tales are guaranteed to have you chuckling – and looking over your shoulder!
